Visitors to the museum can take field trips, plus even if you can't visit the museum, you can still benefit from it! The museum website offers free classroom activities and resources. There is a collection of brain games you can download, too, so you can challenge yourself from the comfort of your own home.
But, if you can, make the trip! This is my favorite science museum. There is so much to see and do. These images barely scratch the surface of what's there. If I lived even remotely close to Chicago, I'd be here all the time!
